Based on its gorgeous writing, unique theme park backdrop, and riveting story, Galactic Fun Park easily earns a five out of five-star rating. This is a must-read for animal-loving middle-grade readers who are fans of other animal-centric books like Charlotte’s Web, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, or The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp. It’s well worth checking. – Amazon Review
Galactic Fun Park finished the summer with record attendance, but the uptick in guest complaints about rodents overshadowed the feat. Theme parks thrived on public perception, leaving management no choice but to hire exterminators who set traps near the animal’s burrows and hovels.
The threat of certain death forced the nocturnal animals into action. Losing their extended families and rich culture to the fearful humans wasn’t an option. But pride ran deep within each species, weakening their chance of success.
Could the animals put aside their differences and unite for the good of all? And more importantly, would the effort be wasted on humans who doubted an animal’s intelligence?
